Yes Both the patch and the pills worked never tried the wrist bands the pills worked well and quite quickly we had had a prolonged period of rough seas,the Granddaughter cannot travel more than 10 miles by road and the patches work very well and she has no problems but they can have some funny side effects?

Hi Some passengers find taking the spice Ginger relieves seasickness. Some cruise lines provide crystallized ginger in their restaurants; alternatively, you could take some Ginger powder, capsules, tea or even biscuits. If you search for Ginger and Sickness, you will find many suggestions. Hope this helps .

Best cure for seasickness? A full stomach. You feel sick when you are hungry & low in blood sugar. A full stomach, full of carbs keeps the sickness feeling away. We also recommend the wristbands but they get uncomfortable after a while. Tablets are a poor choice as they make you drowsy and if you want to drink .... not a good mix.

Adonia back with P&O

By Gemma Coles

Gemma Coles's blog

 It doesn’t seem that long ago when we said goodbye to the P&O Adonia. P&O Adonia left the fleet in 2015 with much sadness to lots of passengers. The ship went to Fathom Cruises which is a line dedicated to volunteer tourism. Guests were taken to locations such as the Dominican Republic to help teach English or build water filtration systems to help with poorer countries. Carnival Group have now announced that after an upgrade to the ship, with the addition of a new rest...
